(Causa A La Chiclayana)
Before using hot chilies, please read "How to Handle Hot Chilies" article.
What You Need:
  • 3 pounds baking potatoes, peeled and quartered

  • ¼ cup finely chopped onions
  • ½ cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • Pinch of Cayenne pepper
  • 1 cup olive oil

  • 3 large onions, peeled and sliced 1/8 inch thick
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • ½ cup distilled white vinegar
  • 3 fresh hot red or green chilies, about 3½ inches long, seeded, deribbed and cut lengthwise into 1/8-inch strips
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

  • 1 pound sweet potatoes, peeled and sliced crosswise into ¼-inch rounds
  • 1 pound fresh yuca, peeled and sliced crosswise into ¼-inch rounds
  • 2 ears of fresh corn, shucked and cut into 1½-inch rounds

  • 2 to 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 pounds sea bass fillets, cut crosswise into 2-inch serving pieces, or substitute any firm white fish
  • Salt
  • ½ cup flour
  • 8 to 12 large lettuce leaves, washed and dried
  • 16 pitted ripe black olives
  • ½ pound "queso blanco", sliced ¼ inch thick and cut into triangles 2 inches long and 1 inch wide, or substitute fresh "mozzarella" or Munster cheese

  • How To Cook:
    1. Preheat the oven to 250°F. Drop the quartered baking potatoes into a large pot with enough lightly salted boiling water to cover them, and boil briskly until they are tender but not falling apart.

    2. Meanwhile, make the sauce by combining the chopped onions, lemon juice, 1 tablespoon of salt and 1/8 teaspoon black pepper and Cayenne pepper, and beat them together with a whisk or fork. Then beat in 1 cup of the oil.

    3. Drain the potatoes and mash them to a smooth puree either with a fork, a potato ricer or an electric mixer. Beat in the sauce a tablespoon or so at a time and taste for seasoning.

    4. Transfer the potatoes to a large heatproof serving platter, mound them in the center, and cover the platter loosely with foil. Keep the potatoes warm in the oven while you prepare the other ingredients.

    1. In a small saucepan, combine the sliced onions and chili strips and add sufficient salted water to cover them completely.

    2. Bring to a boil over high heat, then drain off all the water, and in its place pour in the ½ cup of olive oil, the vinegar, 1 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper.

    3. Bring this to a boil, then cover the pan and simmer the mixture over moderate heat for about 5 minutes.

    4. Turn off the heat and cover the pan to keep it warm.

    1. Fill two 3- to 4-quart saucepans with about 2 quarts of water each. Bring them to a boil over high heat and drop into each the sweet potatoes and yuca.

    2. Boil briskly, uncovered, for about 20 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender. Drain them and place them on a heatproof plate, cover with foil and keep them warm in the oven.

    3. Bring 2 quarts of water to a boil over high heat in a heavy 3-quart saucepan. Drop in the corn and boil briskly, uncovered, for 5 to 10 minutes, depending on the tenderness of the corn.

    1. While the corn cooks, fry the fish fillets. Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil over moderate heat in a 10- to 12-inch skillet until a light haze forms above it.

    2. Lightly salt the fillets and dip them in the flour. Shake off any excess flour and fry the fillets for about 2 or 3 minutes on each side, or until they are crisp and golden brown, adding more oil to the pan if necessary.

    1. Remove the platter of sauced, mashed potatoes and the plate of sweet potatoes and yucas from the oven. Reheat the topping if it has cooled. Drain the corn.

    2. Arrange the lettuce leaves in an overlapping ring around the mashed potatoes. Remove the fish from the skillet with a slotted spoon and place the fish, the sweet potatoes, yucas and corn rounds decoratively on the lettuce.

    3. Pour the topping sauce over the mound of mashed potatoes and decorate it with the black olives and cheese wedges. Serve at once.
